A great save by Spain goalkeeper Unai Simon helped Athletic Bilbao draw 0-0 at Levante to keep the hosts winless this season in the Spanish league.

Simon used his left arm to parry a powerful strike by Jorge de Frutos, sending the ball past the post to deny Levante their best scoring chance in the 77th minute.

Bilbao was also stymied in attack. Their best chances came when defender Inigo Martinez headed wide shortly after kickoff and substitute Nico Williams drew a save from stopper Daniel Cardenas late.

Most of the second half was played under heavy rain at the Ciutat de Valencia Stadium.

Levante remain the only winless team in the league after 14 games played.

Getafe can leave Levante at the bottom of the table if they beat Cadiz on Sunday.

Bilbao went a fourth game in a row without a victory, but the Basque Country side is comfortable in seventh place.
